Carson City, officially the Consolidated Municipality of Carson City, is an independent city and the capital of the US state of Nevada, named after the mountain man Kit Carson. Kick off your visit on the 4th (Mon): take an in-depth tour of Nevada State Railroad Museum, then steep yourself in history at Thunderbird Lodge Preservation Society, then kick back and relax at Sand Harbor, and finally contemplate the long history of Chollar Mansion. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: learn more about the world around you at Nevada State Museum, examine the collection at Liberty Engine Company No. 1 Comstock Firemen's Museum, then explore the galleries of Tallac Historic Site, and finally try to win big at Casino Fandango.

In November, daily temperatures in Carson City can reach 55°F, while at night they dip to 28°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
